Question about Aurora Electronics AS1010TX Cross-cut Shredder

1 Answer

Shredder stops after about 10 minutes

The shredder stops after about 10 minutes of work -- acting like it is clogged, but it is not -- we're only shredding about 4 - 5 sheets at a time. It seems to overheat and when allowed to "cool down" it starts again. Why would it overheat when we are only shredding about 4 - 5 sheets at a time? Please answer as soon as possible.

My 10 sheet shredder it not shred 2-4 sheets of paper. it stop in the middle of the paper. I have to put it in rev then back to auto and repeat


Inspection of the shredding mechanism probably will reveal it's clogged with all sorts of debris. It will take a great deal of patience to pick out every bit to restore operation.

My shredder won't shred


If the motor will not run, then probably there's paper clogged in the shredder. Turn over the shredder, after unplugging the power cord, and remove the papers.

If the motor will run but not shredding any paper, then the drive gear has broken teeth. This is not usually worth fixing.
Hope this helps.

How do I fix a staples spl tmc 10 paper shredder that does not feed?


It may be clogged with shredded paper. With power removed, examine the shredding mechanism and remove any bits you find. You may not be able to remove all of the bits but enough to restore operation.

Auto off does not work how do I fix this?


Check to see if the feed is clogged up. If it is, clean it out and try to shred. These machines don't last forever, it may be worn out and time to buy a new one.

My shredder is not working does it have a fuse somewhere


The shredder may be so clogged, with plastic for example, that the motor overheated and went into thermal shutdown. It also is possible that the input sensor is blocked. My experience with shredders that have been used to shred any type of plastic or plastic coated paper is that they are a complete mess inside.

On, Fwd, Rvs button has stopped working on my Shredmaster 75X. How do I fix this?


First check the power point is still working - plug in another appliance, like a table lamp. If OK check the fuse in the shredder cable plug.

The commonest reason for a shredder stopping is a paper jam, or running the shredder for too long. By 'too long', many shredders will cut-out after 5 minutes continuous working, and the sensor may take 15 minutes to cool down! Read the manual.

It maybe that the shredder cutters are jammed. Unplug from mains, and lift off top and place upside down. Use a small screwdriver and/or long nosed pliers to poke at any compressed paper wrapped around the blades - can take a while.

My shredder runs non stop, when I insert paper to shred , it stops... I push reverse, it works , pull paper out and runs non stop.......


Sounds like a bad or stuck sensor, acting as if it is always seeing a peice of paper in it. Check if you can find it and maybe it is just stuck to the on position..

My shredder won't power on. It is not overheated.


Check the Power Ensure that the shredder top is firmly placed in the shredder basket if the unit will not operate. If the top is not in place the feeder will not work and accept any paper. Make sure it is firmly plugged into the wall outlet and that the outlet is active. Rest the Shredder Let the shredder cool down if the shredder has been running continuously for a long time. It may have overheated and needs to be left in the off position for at least 30 minutes to reset. Verify the basket is empty or not too full as that will cause the shredder to deactivate. Clear Paper Jam Rotate the shredder into "Auto" and reverse to loosen any paper jam that is stopping the gears. Pull out any papers that are sticking out from the shredder feeder. If there is no progress then unplug the shredder and remove the shredder top from the bin. Turn it upside down and use tweezers to free any paper that is blocking the gear. Auto Mode Not Working Select the "Auto" option and feed paper into the center of the feeder tray if the shredder is only working in reverse mode. The sensor is located in the middle of the feeder tray and could be blocked by jammed paper. Use an index card to firmly unblock any paper that could be blocking the sensor.
